In brief: Head injury

It depends. Usually, short term memory deficits are most common.
For mild or moderate patient will not develop long term memory lost significantly. If if occurs, you need report to you physician and have more examination to rule out other issues, such as brain tumor, stroke, intracranial bleeding etc. And rule out psychiatric disorder.
